Whenever I try to run the Google Map API v2 project it shows the following error
"The Google Play services resources were not found. Check your project configuration to ensure that the resources are included."
Actually I was trying to add a marker to a specific location whenever clicked on a List Item but I don't see any markers instead I get the App stopped working message in the device. I then checked on the sdk manager and there was an update available for Google Play Services and I downloaded it but also the error is there. So please anyone help.

did you include the jar in your project ?
the play store app on your phone needs to be updated

yes, the android support v4.jar file is included and I think the play store of my device is also up to date

Better check first whether your phone provides correct Google play service or not with this code..
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.Menu;
import android.view.MenuItem;
import android.widget.Toast;
public class MainActivity extends FragmentActivity {
 final int RQS_GooglePlayServices = 1;
 protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
 public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {
  // Inflate the menu; this adds items to the action bar if it is present.
  getMenuInflater().inflate(, menu);
  return true;
 public boolean onOptionsItemSelected(MenuItem item) {
  switch (item.getItemId()) {
      String LicenseInfo = GooglePlayServicesUtil.getOpenSourceSoftwareLicenseInfo(
      AlertDialog.Builder LicenseDialog = new AlertDialog.Builder(MainActivity.this);
      LicenseDialog.setTitle("Legal Notices");
         return true;
  return super.onOptionsItemSelected(item);
 protected void onResume() {
  // TODO Auto-generated method stub
  int resultCode = GooglePlayServicesUtil.isGooglePlayServicesAvailable(getApplicationContext());
  if (resultCode == ConnectionResult.SUCCESS){
     "isGooglePlayServicesAvailable SUCCESS", 
   GooglePlayServicesUtil.getErrorDialog(resultCode, this, RQS_GooglePlayServices);

This will check everything you need to support v2 map and if your mobile are not then it prompts to download from google play.
